Bare and Bubbles 

I don’t know much. About forevers or nevers. I am a giggle filled coconut with easy way outs and friends at sunset in different time zones moving to kygo and mojitos. I am really fortunate. Rarely frightened. Sometimes it’s okay to mix it up. I am spending a few days in silver beds surrounded by…

One Body One Love

It’s not very often you find yourself in a job that makes you cry on a daily basis.
